Try Time Sert. You will have to decide if there is enough meat there to hold
the Time Sert. "Usually" unless the spark plug has really wallowed out the
hole, there is enough solid aluminum. If not.. Look up Big Sert by Googling
Time Sert... I used one for a head stud. Good Luck.

Well. there I was getting ready for a nice cruise in the 63 Monza, (65
engine) and suddenly a sound I have heard before. Several months ago the
number one plug blew out of the engine taking threads and all with it. After
helicoiling it and reinserting a new plug, everything was fine until
yesterday when the same thing happened. I am afraid I am looking at a major
job here, but wonder if there is any work around like re-helicoiling or some
such thing that plug hole and avoiding all the aggravation of "worst case".
Any suggestions are welcome. 

Working with an aluminum engine has been a challenge!! 

Thanks in advance
